Re: How to prevent text to be modified

G'day, lellius et al I've given this problem more thought, as I've found it intriguing. I suspect that some sort of "Spare Me" command might be difficult to implement. Footnote numbering comes to mind, but there could well be other issues whereby certain aspects of the text to be spared alteration m...

Re: How to prevent text to be modified

G'day, lellius et al I am unaware of any such command. One possible workaround would be to take a screenshot of the text block (with Show Invisibles turned off) and insert the resultant image in the place of the original text. However, this would cause problems with Statistics (eg, word count), Tabl...

Re: File Kind “Nisus Writer Glossary"

G'day, Martin et al Thanks for the reply, Martin. I read the article you referred me to (thanks) and ran Onyx, which was one of the suggested maneuvers, but no change to the Kind. Faced with a choice between Martin's "Fret not" advice and wielding the Terminal scalpel to perform more major neurosurg...

File Kind “Nisus Writer Glossary"

G'day, all I have just now noticed that, when I save a new untitled NWP file with Format "Rich Text Format (RTF)", the file is saved with Kind set to "Nisus Writer Glossary" rather than to "rich text format (RTF)” which I think it always has been in the past. I see a few of my existing files with Ki...

Re: Formatting page

G’day, msebban et al Have you tried the following? File > Page Setup… > Paper Size > Manage Custom Sizes… Click on the “+” sign to add a new Custom Size, give it a name, then enter the desired dimensions and click “OK”. You can then get your PDF document via the Print dialog or via File > Export As ...

Re: deleting paragraph style B and replacing it with paragraph style A

G’day, Philip et al

Much better, Philip!

I don’t think I’ve ever needed to do this on a mass scale before, so I wasn’t aware of that command. Thanks for pointing it out.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: deleting paragraph style B and replacing it with paragraph style A

G'day, shmuel et al One way of doing this is to use the Find & Replace system with settings as in the attached illustration. (The Case checkboxes don't really matter here.) Changing Paragraph Style.jpg The expression in the Find field was obtained from the drop-down cogwheel menu ("Find what:") unde...

Re: New document window size

G’day, Eric et al I’m not sure how things go under Catalina, but in Nisus Writer Pro under Mojave you can use View > Full Screen. There is an existing keyboard shortcut for that command. Another possibility is to adjust the window size of a Nisus New File document so it fills the screen (apart from ...

Beware Catalina

G’day, all For anyone contemplating moving to macOS 10.15 Catalina, be aware that Mac-related forums appear to be flagging more than the usual number of difficulties with a new operating system. I for one will be sticking with Mojave for many months yet. In fact, if past experience is anything to go...

Non-floating Character Viewer

G’day, all I find the Character Viewer one of the most useful features of the Mac, but also one of its most annoying. Even in its minimized form, it is too intrusive when one is not actually consulting it. Does anyone know of a Terminal command to make the Character Viewer window non-floating, as on...

Re: Line spacing when using Combining Diacritical Marks

G'day, all There are things happening here which I'm afraid I don't understand. If someone can shed some light on them, it might help waltzmn as well.

Re: Transform to Toggled Case not working?

G'day, Cristiano et al Ah, you are operating under a misconception regarding case, possibly due to a semantic issue. The word "capitalize" is ambiguous. In the context of Nisus Writer, a capitalized word is one whose initial letter is uppercase and subsequent letters are lowercase: it is not one wit...

Re: Delete all paragraph symbols within a paragraph but not at the end of it

G'day, CrisRich58 et al Reading between the lines, as it were, I wonder whether you were selecting your lines without selecting the unwanted paragraph returns at the ends of them, before invoking the Remove Line Breaks command. Selecting everything as one continuous slab of text should feed the comm...

It works OK for me in NWP 3.0.3.

Re: Delete all paragraph symbols within a paragraph but not at the end of it

G'day, CrisRich58 et al

I created a NWP document with the characteristics you describe, selected all the relevant text (lines) as one slab, then applied the Remove Line Breaks command. It worked fine for me.

For reference, see P. 659 of the Nisus Writer Pro User Guide.

Cheers,
Adrian
